One vote.
Gov. Jerry Brown and the
California High-Speed Rail
Authority nearly missed building
one of the largest public works proj-
ects in the states history Friday as
the state Senate passed a nearly $8
billion funding plan to start con-
struction in the Central Valley by
just one vote.
Proponents called the vote a his-
toric moment for the state while
opponents have described it more as
a historic blunder.
The rail funding plan also calls
for electrifying the Caltrain tracks, a
$1.5 billion project, by 2019 to
make them compatible with high-
speed trains under a blended sys-
tem that will travel from Los
Angeles to San Francisco.
The blended system was the idea
of three high-powered local law-
makers early last year as a way to
make the project more palatable on
the Peninsula by reducing the risk
of property takings. The idea was
that of Assemblyman Rich Gordon,
D-Menlo Park, U.S. Rep. Anna
Eshoo, D-Palo Alto, and state Sen.
Joe Simitian, D-Palo Alto. The three
urged the rail authority to scrap
plans to build a four-track aerial
viaduct on the Peninsula in favor of
having high-speed trains essentially
share the Caltrain corridor on its
current two-track system with the
addition of about nine miles of pass-
ing tracks.
This is an historic moment and a
huge win for the Peninsula, Eshoo
wrote in a statement following
Fridays approval of the project.
The rail authority has since
embraced the blended system
approach but on Friday, Simitian
voted against the trailer bill that
releases Proposition 1A bond
money to start construction on the
project. Voters passed the $9 billion
Historic moment or blunder?

San Mateo County cannot wait
years to complete its emergency
plan in the event levees break,
according to the civil grand jury
which knocked ofcials for not fol-
lowing through on its 2007 recom-
mendations, but members of the
Sheriffs Office said limited
resources push other needs ahead.
Its not a matter of it not being
important but trying to prioritize to
see where is the greatest threat and
work on those areas rst. Theyre
not devoid of attention and as state
and federal money is available well
look at them but there is a lot of
competition, said Lt. Mark
Robbins of the
Office of

said any change
starts first with

has 23 levees of which three are not

AT&T drops legal
fight over mans $1M bill
IPSWICH, Mass. AT&T Inc. says
its dropping its legal ght against a
Massachusetts businessman whose com-

million-dollar phone bill.
The telecommunications company said
in a statement Monday it is no longer pur-
suing its claims against Michael Smith of

to collect the amounts owed.
Smith said the offer depends on his

system in 2009 and made nearly
$900,000 in calls to Somalia. AT&T sued

cost of the calls plus interest.

bemoan deer stand mansions
DULUTH, Minn. Some Minnesota
hunters are upgrading their deer stands,
trading the traditional nailed-together
hunks of wood for what one ofcial calls
mansions in trees on public property.
St. Louis County ofcials are seeing
deer stands platforms perched in trees
to help hunters more easily spot deer
with stairways, decks, shingled roofs,
commercial windows, insulation,
propane heaters, carpeting, lounge chairs,
tables and even the occasional generator,
the Duluth News Tribune reported
Some hunters have even planted crops
near their stands in hopes of attracting
deer, said St. Louis County Land
Commissioner Bob Krepps. He said
hunters have also cut down trees near
their stand to improve sight lines.
Were getting overbuilt, Krepps said.
Were seeing mansions out there
basically hunting shacks on stilts.
Private landowners can do what they
want, Krepps said, but tax-forfeited land
makes up nearly 1 million acres of coun-
ty forest, and is supposedly open to all
hunters. Hunters who customize stands in
these areas are inappropriately claiming
public land as their own, he said.
A lot of these cross the line of whats
appropriate, Krepps said. If Im out
walking and come across one of these
buildings on posts, am I going to feel
welcome to hunt there? Probably not.
And if I do, theres likely to be a ght.
That shouldnt happen on land that
belongs to everyone.
Thieves bust through wall
to steal hair extensions
CHICAGO Three thieves battered
through a wall, crawled close to the oor
to dodge motion detectors and stole six
duffel bags lled with human hair exten-
sions from a Chicago beauty supply
The Chicago Tribune reported
Saturday that the hair extensions were
worth $230,000.
Store owner Don Shin says the crimi-
nals took his best merchandise. He thinks
the culprits will try to sell the extensions
on the street or to salons. The thieves
broke through a wall from an attached
empty storefront at about 2 a.m.
Extensions can be made from articial
or human hair. They are used in salons to
add length and volume to a hairstyle.
Shin says the thieves didnt take any of
the cheap stuff and knew what they
were doing.

Being strong, individual characters on
stage while fostering what appears to be a
natural friendship would be a challenge for
any actor.
For the four women taking on The
Marvelous Wonderettes, the challenge seems
to come with lots of laughter and support.
The four-woman musical is the next show
offered by Broadway By the Bay. Starting
July 12, be transported back to high school in
the 50s and 60s with jukebox hits like Mr.
Sandman, Lollipop, Its My Party, and
Leader of the Pack. Songs carry the story of
four girls at a high school prom who then
return 10 years later for the class reunion. But
dont be fooled by the upbeat tunes, the
women said. This isnt just an homage to pop
music from past decades; theres substance to
the story as well.
Making the performance extra special is
that each of the leading ladies is making her
debut with Broadway by the Bay.
Kristin Schmitz, who plays Betty Jean,
recalled thinking shed be the odd woman
out, coming into a cast that has most likely
worked together. Amie Shapiro of Redwood
City, who plays Missy, was equally surprised.
Each girl thought getting cast was a bit of a
long shot. But they enjoy singing, so they
went for it. Adrienne Walters from Palo Alto,
who plays Suzy, particularly enjoys singing
harmonies which this show is full of. And,
despite not knowing each other at the start,
the girls have quickly become close and start-
ed recognizing the many connections they
have, explained Ashley Rae Little who plays
Cindy Lou.
Sit with the ladies and its like hanging out
with a group of friends. Theres laughter, n-
ishing of each others sentences and constant
support of the others skills.
Shapiro, for example, noted being on stage
and thinking Schmitz really did forget her
line. Dont worry, it was all part of the show.
Others agreed and the girls laughed, but the
point was a good one. After a short but inten-
sive period working together to prepare for
the show, the ladies have come to trust one
another. If someone needs help on stage,
another girl steps up.
Its like four one-woman shows going on
simultaneously, said Schmitz.
Each actress has her own obstacle to over-
come. For Schmitz, for example, its aging 10
years for the second act. Walters, on the other
hand, loves the second act as does Shapiro.
Shapiro, who is 26, said she feels more com-
fortable in the role of a 20 something woman.
Each character reaches her stride in life at a
different point in the show, said Little, mak-
ing it engaging for those watching but a dif-
ferent experience for each involved.
The women who all perform for the love of
it are excited to showcase the characters they
have been working on perfecting.
It has a heart, Shapiro said of the show.
Its not just uff. But it has something in it
for everyone.
The Marvelous Wonderettes runs
Thursday, July 12 through Sunday, July 29.
Shows are 8 p.m. Thursdays through
Saturdays and 2 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays

For the second time in a year, county
officials convened yesterday to tackle
future economic development and
begin building a blueprint for ways to
draw more dollars into and from San
Mateo County business.
Nothing was set in stone but county
supervisors were strongly in favor of
establishing a new economic resources
department, possibly under the umbrel-
la of the county managers office and
including housing, to raise the countys
You have a great story to tell ... but
it needs strong branding and identity,
said Leslie Parks of Keyser Marston
Associates, a consulting group retained
by the county earlier this year to craft a
more specific strategy.
The time is ripe for such a plan
because the economy has improved,
unemployment is lower, job creation is
growing albeit still lagging and the dis-
solution of redevelopment agencies has
left a gap, Parks said.
Even with a design in place, there is
no guarantee for solutions but Parks
urged the Board of Supervisors not to
sit idle.
At the end of the day, I think doing
nothing is the biggest threat, Parks
Although the special study session
was the second focused on economic
development for the Board of
Supervisors, the meeting was a first for
County Manager John Maltbie since his
return on an interim basis. The
November gathering with the same
agenda came just weeks before former
county manager David Boesch and the
board parted ways.
However, Assistant County Manager
David Holland took the helm of the
meeting in which the goal was primari-
ly the same being financially proac-
tive to spur economic development
which officials say will help chip away
at a structural deficit and bolster the
business climate as a whole.
Yesterdays study session expanded on
the ideas from the first meeting and
gave more detail on possibilities.
In November, the board looked at bet-
ter utilizing county-owned property and
facilities. Since then, the San Mateo
County Event Center has launched
studies into the feasibility of expansion
and adding a hotel.
Debbie Kern, also of Keyser Marston,
said they looked at properties with the
highest potential for private develop-
ment like Circle Star in San Carlos,
portions of the courthouse parking lot
and a highway lot in Half Moon Bay.
Sales collectively could bring in more
than $100 million and lease revenue
could generate about $8 million annual-
Parks told the board it cannot wait for
development opportunities to drop in its
lap but instead must go out an find
Supervisor Adrienne Tissier, presi-
dent of the board, preferred the idea of
leasing over selling property and sug-
gested RDA dissolution could have a
silver lining for the county and its cities
in terms of economic development.
Redevelopment going away is a bad
thing in many ways but on the flip side
it could be a good thing for us at the
county because it is an incentive for us
all to work together, Tissier said.
Holland said he anticipates a final
report by the end of the month after
which the supervisors said they are
itching to get going.
We need to now go into the next
step, said Supervisor Carole Groom.
We need to absorb and put together a
work plan so we can have a road map to

County talks economic development
By Bill Silverfarb
Keeping your takeout warm in
Styrofoam containers in Belmont will
likely be a lost option as the City
Council considers joining a countywide
ban on polystyrene tonight.
The council will hear a second reading
of an ordinance that prohibits restau-
rants, delicatessens, cafes, markets, fast-
food establishments, vendors at fairs,
food vendors and food trucks from dis-
pensing prepared food in polystyrene
Councilwoman Coralin Feierbach
supports the ban.
Ive been wanting to do that for a
long time. We need to prohibit it,
Feierbach said.
The ordinance does not apply to the
use of polystyrene for pre-packaged
foods such as meats or eggs in markets
nor does it prevent the use of poly-
styrene for non-food businesses.
The countywide ban for unincorporat-
ed areas went into effect July 1, 2011
and many cities in the county have
already adopted the countys blueprint.
The countys Environmental Health
Division has been meeting with busi-
nesses since the ordinance passed last
year on periodic inspections to give
them the chance to use up their remain-
ing inventory of prohibited polystyrene
products. The department also advises
businesses on what the suitable alterna-
tives to polystyrene are for storing food.
Fines are levied only after a business
operator fails to comply with the ordi-
nance after repeated counseling, accord-
ing to a staff report.
Administration and enforcement of
the rules would be handled by the coun-
ty, according to the staff report.
Fines will range from $100 for a rst
violation up to $500 for three or more
Banning the polystyrene-based dis-
posable food boxes will decrease litter
and cleanup costs and also protect
marine life, according to the staff report.
Polystyrene products have become a
problematic environmental pollutant
given their non-biodegradable and near-
ly non-reusable nature. The containers
constitute a substantial portion of the lit-
ter found on streets, streams, creeks and
in the citys storm-drain system, accord-
ing to the staff report.
That is biggest problem is that it
takes hundreds of years to break down
and ends up in land lls, Mayor Dave
Warden said. There are reasonable
biodegradable alternatives.
The council meets 7:30 p.m., tonight,
City Hall, 1 Twin Pines Lane, Belmont.

WASHINGTON Facing sagging jobs
numbers, President Barack Obama sought to
recast the November election as a ght over tax
fairness on Monday, urging tax cut extensions
for all families earning less than $250,000 but
denying them to households making more than
The presidents pitch was aimed at painting
Republican rival Mitt Romney as a protector of
the rich at a time of economic unease, as
Democrats intensify efforts to raise questions
about the Romneys own wealth and offshore
bank accounts.
Romney supports extending the federal tax
cuts, rst signed by George W. Bush, for all
income earners.
Obama said if Congress passes a one-year
extension for those making less than $250,000,
voters can use the November election to decide
the fate of the cuts for higher income earners.
My opponent will ght to keep them in
place. I will ght to end them, said Obama,
anked by a dozen people the White House
said would benet from the tax cut extension.
The president has long supported ending the
Bush-era tax cuts for those making more than
$250,000. The White House and the presidents
re-election team are reviving his arguments
now as a way to suggest that the push by
Romney and congressional Republicans for an
across-the-board extension of the tax cuts could
put Americas middle class
at risk.
Lets not hold the vast
majority of Americans and
our economy hostage
while we debate the merits
of another tax cut for the
wealthy, Obama said at
the White House.
The presidents sudden
focus on the tax fairness
debate was also an attempt to change the elec-
tion subject after yet another lackluster jobs
report. New numbers released Friday showed
the nations unemployment rate stuck at 8.2
percent, giving Romney fresh grounds to attack
Obama as unt to steer the U.S. economy.
Romney campaign spokeswoman Andrea
Saul said the president was responding to the
bad economic news by calling for a massive
tax increase.
It just proves again that the president does-
nt have a clue how to get America working
again and help the middle class, Saul said.
Obama said his proposal was aimed at
staving off an end-of-the year stalemate with
Congress. But it appeared to have the opposite
Congressional Republicans immediately
balked, saying it would be a mistake to raise
taxes on anyone while the economy was still
struggling to recover. The House GOP plans to
make its own push this summer for a full exten-
sion of the tax cuts.

SACRAMENTO Gov. Jerry Browns
initiative to raise taxes received top billing on
the November ballot just hours after a judge
rejected a challenge from a competing meas-
ure Monday.
Sacramento County Superior Court Judge
Michael Kenny denied a request from the Our
Children, Our Future campaign to stop the
secretary of state from placing the Democratic
governors tax measure atop the ballot.
As a result, the secretary of state proceeded
with numbering the 11 measures 10 initia-
tives and one referendum on the November
statewide ballot.
Browns proposal to temporarily increase
the state sales tax and income tax for incomes
over $250,000 a year will appear rst, as
Proposition 30. The competing tax measure to
fund public schools is Proposition 38.
Mondays decision remains on appeal from
anti-tax advocates.
The legal wrangling began after Democratic
lawmakers passed a bill that moved bond
measures and constitutional amendments such
as Browns to the top of the ballot in
November, when voters will confront a bar-
rage of questions.
Along with raising taxes, voters will be
asked about ending executions, limiting life-
time sentences for career criminals and
restricting political contributions.
Brown said Monday that his ballot measure
is so important that it deserves the dignity of
being ranked with other constitutional meas-
ures and bond issues because it fundamental-
ly changes state operations.
A constitutional amendment aimed at
changing the way state government manages

Nearly 41,000 county
adults struggled with
food during downturn
An estimated nearly 41,000 San Mateo County adults, espe-
cially low-income Latinos and those in households with chil-
dren, struggled to put food on the table during the recent reces-
sion, according to a new study by the UCLA Center for Health
Policy Research.
The study found that nearly four million California adults
had food insecurity and, in 2009, approximately one in six
low-income residents had very low food security during which
they went hungry. These gures are double the one-in-12 nd-
ings in 2001, according to the center which based its study on
data from the California Health Interview Survey.
Bay Area counties experienced a steep 14 percent increase in
food insecurity compared to Southern California counties,
other than Los Angeles, which saw a 10 percent increase.
The food insecurity followed the so-called Great
Recession of 2007-2009 when the states unemployment rate
more than doubled and ination-adjusted incomes dropped
nearly 5 percent the largest on record. As the economy
struggles to recover, the studys authors say many families
including those in San Mateo County may still be struggling.
With the economy still in a slump, many families are grap-
pling with difcult choices: Do I pay the bills or buy food to
feed my children? said study co-author Gail Harrison, a pub-
lic health professor and faculty association at the center, in a
prepared statement.
California Food Policy Advocates, which funded the study,
said Congress can help by maintaining an adequate and
resilient safety net. In particular, Harrison and the other study
authors point to the states food stamp program as keeping par-
ticipants as the only low-income population that did not have
an increase in food insecurity.
Challenges remain
for high-speed rail
By Hannah Dreier
SACRAMENTO California lawmakers may have given
their OK to what could be the nations rst high-speed rail line,
but the project is still a ways from leaving the station.
Even with prominent supporters such as President Barack
Obama and Gov. Jerry Brown, bullet train backers must still
overcome a number of challenges, including environmental
concerns, clashes with local leaders over land use, a $68 billion
overall price tag with no funding guarantees, and an increas-
ingly disenchanted public.
Supporters applauded Friday when the state Legislature nar-
rowly approved $4.5 billion in state funds for rail improve-
ments and to begin construction of the rst segment of high-
speed track in the agricultural Central Valley. The move
enabled the state to tap $3.2 billion in federal bond money.
Critics, however, are redoubling their efforts to derail the
project that could eventually link Los Angeles and San
Francisco with trains traveling up to 220 mph.
Among those gearing up for a ght are the farmers whose
land lies in the path of the massive infrastructure project.
The Madera and Merced county farm bureaus have led a
lawsuit to halt the project on grounds that the state has not
done enough environmental vetting. The plaintiffs say the train
would render 1,500 acres of fertile land unfarmable and disrupt
500 agricultural businesses. More suits are expected in the
coming months.
We are going to protect our property, said Frank Oliveira,
a farmer who has been active in opposing the plan.
Brown, a Democrat, has made the project a touchstone of his

New crisis looms in Egypt over legislatures fate
CAIRO A new showdown loomed in Egypt on Monday as
the countrys highest court stood by its ruling that dissolved par-
liament last month, challenging the new Islamist presidents
plans to reconvene the lower chamber in deance of the military.
If he goes ahead, Mohammed Morsi would be taking a dra-
matic step away from the outreach that characterized his rst
days in ofce. Its a tough ght, though, and the president could
lose it along with more of his already diminished powers.
The military, which handed power to Morsi on June 30 after
ruling the country for 16 months, delivered a thinly-veiled warn-
ing to the president, saying it would continue to support the
countrys legitimacy, constitution and law language that
means it will not stand by and watch the rulings of the countrys
top court ignored or breached.

Senate floor Friday explaining his no
My hope is that the project is a suc-
cess. Im just not convinced this is the
right way to make it real, Simitian
said Friday on the Senate floor.
Yesterday, he told the Daily Journal
that the bill has some great benefits for
the Peninsula but that spending $6 bil-
lion in federal funds for a 130-mile
stretch of conventional tracks in the
Central Valley is a poor investment.
He is pleased that the rail authority
has scrapped its mega-project for the
Peninsula in favor of the blended sys-
tem and said funding in the bill for an
electrified Caltrain is a significant plus.
Browns bill needed 21 votes to pass
and it got exactly 21 votes, with every
Republican in the Senate voting against
Sen. Ted Gaines, R-Rocklin, is the
vice chair of the Senate Transportation
and Housing Committee, who voted
against the project Friday.
The Democrats just passed another
budget that is billions of dollars out of
balance and now they are threatening
to cut billions more from our schools
unless they get a massive tax increase
in November, Gaines wrote in a state-
ment. And they think this is the appro-
priate time to sink a fortune into a
high-speed rail project that is doomed
to failure? Those half-empty train cars
will be a monument to misplaced prior-
ities and fiscal recklessness.
The overall project is estimated to
cost about $68 billion, down from ear-
lier projections of nearly $100 billion.
Locally, Belmont Mayor Dave
Warden is still not convinced the proj-
ect will not have major effects on the
Warden is concerned that to electrify
the tracks, Caltrain will need to take
some right-of-way on Old County
Road, east of the tracks. He is also con-
cerned that the nine miles of passing
tracks needed so high-speed trains can
pass Caltrain trains may be also
planned for Belmont.
The biggest problem the statewide
project has, however, is how to fund it,
Warden said.
Where is the $50 billion coming
from? Not from the feds. I think voters
would undo the bonds if they could,
he said.
Warden hopes the state doesnt build
tracks in the Central Valley that never
get used.
For Assemblywoman Fiona Ma, D-
San Francisco, Fridays Senate vote
was a relief.
Ma helped get the bond measure on
the 2008 ballot when then Gov. Arnold
Schwarzenegger was not in support of
it. She spent the past six years advocat-
ing for the project.
I think the public sees this as being
for the future when the states popula-
tion hits 50 million, Ma said.
She praises Brown for taking a lead-
ership role in the project and said
Caltrain modernization efforts would
be dead without the deal it made with
the rail authority.
The Senate bill passed Friday releas-
es an additional $600 million to fund
Caltrains modernization plan on top of
another $106 million in funds already
approved by the California
Transportation Commission. Overall,
the bill authorized the state to begin
selling $4.5 billion in voter-approved
bonds and allow the state to collect
another $3.2 billion in federal funding
that would have been rescinded had the
state failed to act Friday.
Caltrain publicly praised the local
legislators Friday who voted to release
the bond money including Ma, Gordon
and Assemblymembers Jerry Hill, D-
San Mateo, Tom Ammiano, D-San
Francisco, Jim Beall, D-San Jose, Paul
Fong, D-Mountain View and Nora
Campos, D-San Jose.
In the state Senate, Sens. Leland Yee,
D-San Francisco, Mark Leno, D-San
Francisco, and Elaine Alquist, D-San
Jose, also voted to release the bond
As is often the case with historic
votes, this one was controversial but
these legislators stood tall in the face of
relentless opposition, Caltrain Board
Chair Adrienne Tissier said.
The fact that the rail authority has
embraced the blended system for
Caltrain, Tissier said, should help
resolve a lot of issues on the Peninsula.
There will always be some against
it, she said.
Some of the opposition included the
Peninsula Cities Consortium, made up
of officials from Palo Alto, Atherton,
Menlo Park, Belmont and Burlingame.
Another local group against the proj-
ect, High-Speed Boondoggle, is
responsible for all those blue There
goes the neighborhood signs you see
on lawns all over the Peninsula.
Boondoggle billboards are posted
against the project in the Central Valley
now. The group opposed the project
based on misleading ridership and cost
projections put forth by the rail author-
ity. When voters approved Proposition
1A less than four years ago, the rail
authority estimated the overall cost of
the project to be about $33 billion.
I dont think the benefits outweigh
the impacts, said Russ Cohen, one of
the founders of High-Speed
Boondoggle will publicize which
lawmakers voted for and against the
project and will continue to act as the
advertising agency for those con-
cerned about the project, Cohen said.
He said Simitian and two other
Democrats in the Senate who voted
against the project Friday, Sens. Mark
DeSaulnier, D-Concord, and Alan
Lowenthal, D-Long Beach, were the
three most knowledgeable lawmakers
on the subject of high-speed rail.
The three who knew the most about
the project voted against it, Cohen
For Gordon, his support for the bill
was contingent on protecting the
blended system approach he, Simitian
and Eshoo put forward 15 months ago.
Electrifying Caltrain has been a
dream and vision for decades, Gordon
said. This will allow us to implement
that dream. It is outstanding news for
our region.
The bill the Senate passed Friday
calls for protecting the integrity of
the blended system, Gordon said.
Gordon actually spoke with Simitian
Thursday night before the Senate vote
Friday after the Assembly overwhelm-
ingly passed the bill. Simitian had been
considered to be on the fence leading
up to the vote.
I didnt ask him how he was going
to vote and he didnt offer, Gordon
told the Daily Journal. We spoke
about the blended approach protections
Gordon said he was a little sur-
prised by Simitians no vote.
After I listened to him, I understood
his concerns, Gordon said.

Letters to the editor
By Morris Brown
n Friday, the state Senate passed by
a 21:16 margin an appropriation bill
for $8 billion. The leadership
claims it is for high-speed rail, but that cer-
tainly is not the case.
Not a single Republican voted for the bill
which needed 21 votes to pass. There are 25
Democrats in the state Senate. Four
Democratic senators, Lowenthal, Simitian,
DeSaulnier and Pavley, had the will and guts
to oppose the bill, leaving the other 21
Democrats with just enough votes to pass the
Amazing as it may seem, these four
Democrat senators, all of whom had been
active in committee work and were the few
who knew the project well, all voted no. The
other 21 Democrat senators, were led like
sheep down the yes path, under the leader-
ship of senators Steinberg and Leno and our
Gov. Jerry Brown.
Talk about shady dealings. The appropria-
tion bill was devised behind closed doors; no
Republican was allowed to be involved; the
bill language was not released to anyone
until late on July 3. The result was almost all
the Democrat Legislature members never
read and certainly never understood what
was going on here. They simply followed
their leaders and voted yes. That is except for
the four Democrat senators mentioned above.
Kept private and not released until Tuesday
was a Legislative Counsel opinion/ruling on
the legality of items in the business plan.
Certainly almost the whole Legislature was
both unaware of this document and was not
aware of its implications.
Particular note should be taken of the votes
of senators Yee (San Francisco) and Evans
(Santa Rosa), both of whom on Thursday
stated they would vote no
on the appropriation. Yet
they both voted yes on
Friday. Just what did the
leadership give these two
senators, which changed
their votes?
The chair of the author-
ity board, Dan Richard,
now has repositioned
what the Proposition 1A, voter approved
bond measure will fund. The funding is no
longer high-speed rail funding, but rather a
funding for rail modernization. This new
plan includes all sorts of funding for regular
passenger, low-speed rail projects.
Proposition 1A was passed in November
2008 by a 52.5 percent to 47.5 percent mar-
gin. It was presented as a $33 billion project,
which was to fund a high-speed train, run-
ning on electrical power, speeding up to 220
mph, and being able, as part of its specica-
tions, to provide passengers a one-seat ride
from San Francisco to Los Angeles in two
hours and 40 minutes.
Four years later, we are looking at a $68
billion (lowest current estimate) project,
which will take at least 3 hours and 30 min-
utes from San Francisco to Los Angeles, with
projected ticket prices that have dramatically
It has been noted the methods used to push
the bill through, on a holiday week, just
before the Legislature was to recess, would
be totally illegal if attempted at a local or
county level. Because of state-mandated
measures like the Brown Act, public notice
of such actions well in advance of taking a
vote are required. At the state level, the
Legislature seems to do anything they wish
on a timeline it can create at will. In this
case, the leadership shut out the public and
effectively shut out almost all opposition in
the Assembly and Senate as well.
The high-speed rail project has become
unpopular with the voters. Opposition in the
Central Valley is huge. A Field Poll shows
that statewide about 60 percent of the voters
want it stopped.
The core part of the appropriation, almost
$6 billion of the $8 billion is to fund a 130-
mile stretch of tracks in the low ridership
area of the Central Valley. These tracks have
neither electrical power nor Positive Train
Control and other systems, all of which are
needed for a 200 mph high-speed train.
Sen. Simitian, a Democrat, in his 17 min-
utes of remarks stating why the appropriation
for this project should be voted down ended
But regrettably, the only conclusion I can
come to today is that this is the wrong plan
in the wrong place at the wrong time. And I
will be a no vote.
He, Lowenthal, DeSaulnier and Pavley
failed by one vote to defeat the bill.
A very sad day for California, its education
system, social networks, etc. all of which
will be stripped of revenue in the future, as
funding for this project will come from the
General Fund, and there is only so much
funding to go around.
Morris Brown was the plaintiff in a lawsuit
against the high-speed rail project and the
High-Speed Rail Authority that was dismissed.
He holds a Ph.D. from Stanford University in
organic chemistry. He lives in Menlo Park.
A vote to remember
Fridays state Senate vote was of monu-
mental importance not only in Sacramento
and the Central Valley, where the initial high-
speed rail construction is now funded, but in
the metropolitan regions of Los Angeles and
the Bay Area where commuter rail systems
will see major upgrades due to the revised
high-speed rail business plan.
As the weekend AP article noted, the vote
was a major victory for President Obama
who championed high-speed rail throughout
the nation. Incredibly, new Republican gover-
nors in Wisconsin, Ohio and Florida rejected
the competitive grants their predecessors had
sought. Their loss was our gain as a total of
$3.3 billion in federal funds will put
Californians to work constructing and mod-
ernizing rail systems in the north, central and
southern parts of the state.
I want to say thank you to Assemblymen
Gordon and Hill for supporting the rail
authorization in the Assembly and Senator
Yee in the Senate.

We, the taxpayers own the blame square
and fair. We did not voice opinions and put
pressure on our elected politicians to do what

Atlantis? People claiming to have found con-
crete proof of minotaurs?
So the NOAA put the kibosh on the idea with
a posting under the ocean facts section of its
website that aquatic humanoids dont exist
because, as a side note, one can always believe
what is read on the Internet. Next the masses
will be deluded into thinking the malware warn-
ings werent actually a government conspiracy
to nab individual computer user information.
But back to the mermaids. Does the govern-
ment really have to tell people mermaids are up
there with Santa Claus and the Easter Bunny?
Of course it does. Remember, we are a society
that needs warning labels informing users that
Superman capes dont allow people to y, fast-
food coffee cups contain hot liquids and hair
dryers should not be used while bathing or
sleeping. In other words, we are a society that
need blatant explanations.
On the other hand, we are a society that
seems to really want to believe. How else to
explain the glut of hunters and reality shows
aimed at Bigfoot, the Loch Ness Monster and
little green men from Mars?
Even when the subject is a little less mythical
than say dragons and unicorns, some get suck-
ered into suspending disbelief. Case in point
the 2009 hoax of Balloon Boy. A Colorado cou-
ple sent off a helium balloon and claimed their
6-year-old son was inside, oating thousands of
feet above the world. The horror! The media
frenzy! The naive masses that gobbled it up!
It shouldnt be any wonder zombies required
ofcial attention. On the heels of the horric
face-eating episode in Miami, other cannibalis-
tic incidents chalked up to zombie-like behavior
and a glut of zombie-centric television shows
and products (zombie bullets anyone?), the
CDC announced it does not know of a virus or
condition that would reanimate the dead (or one
that would present zombie-like symptoms).
I bet that was the best press release that
spokesperson wrote all year.
And I bet those words did nothing to calm the
fears of those who actually think legions of
esh-eating zombies are on their way. Same
goes for the mermaid fans those willing to
even consider the likelihood wont necessarily
be swayed by denials no matter how ofcial.
Who really knows? Maybe there really are
The possibility certainly makes a heck of a
sh tale.

Big movers

WASHINGTON Americans put
more on their credit cards in May than in
any single month since November 2007,
one month before the Great Recession
But overall credit card use is still well
below where it was just before the down-
turn. Economists say Mays increase
was likely a temporary response to
weaker hiring and poor wage growth and
not a sign of sustained condence in the
We might see additional increases in
credit card debt in the coming months,
said Paul Edelstein, director of con-
sumer financial economics at IHS
Global Insight. But they wont match
the May surge.
Consumer borrowing rose by $17.1
billion in May from April, the Federal
Reserve said Monday. The gain drove
total borrowing to a seasonally adjusted
$2.57 trillion, nearly matching the all-
time high reached in July 2008.
Borrowing has increased steadily over
the past two years. But most of the gains
have been driven by auto and student
loans, which rose to a record level of
$1.7 trillion in May.
Consumers cut back sharply on credit
card debt during the recession and
immediately after. Only in the past year
have they started to put more on their
credit cards and the gains have mostly
been modest.
That changed in May when the meas-
ure of credit card debt jumped by $8 bil-
lion. Still, the level of debt for that cate-
gory increased to only $870 billion, or
2.2 percent above the post-recession low
hit in April 2011. The category had
totaled more than $1 trillion before and
shortly after the recession began.
And consumers reached for their cred-
it cards more often during a tough
stretch for the economy. The job market
slumped. Consumer condence fell. And
wages and salaries, which have barely
kept up with ination in the past year,
stayed at.
It is possible that households are
relying more and more on credit cards to
cover everyday expenses, given that job
and income growth are so weak, said
Joel Naroff, chief economist at Naroff
Economic Advisors, said that growth in
consumer credit is still being held back
by the weak gains in income.
Americans step up credit card use

WASHINGTON The head of the
Pentagons Cyber Command on Monday
called for swift action in Congress to sort
out roles, standards and authorities for
government agencies charged with
defending against destructive computer
Army Gen. Keith Alexander, speaking
at the American Enterprise Institute think
tank, said the time for legislative action is
now, before the nation is hit with a major
cyberattack an event he called increas-
ingly likely.
The conict is growing, the probabili-
ty for crisis is mounting, he said. While
we have the time, we should think about
and enact those things that we need to
ensure our security in this area. Do it now,
before a crisis.
Numerous government agencies play a
role in defending the nations computer
infrastructure, including the Defense
Department, the Department of
Homeland Security and the FBI.
Referring to the prospect of a destruc-
tive not just disruptive attack on
vital U.S. computer systems, Alexander
said, I do think thats coming our way.
You can see this statistically; the number
of attacks is growing.
Alexander made no mention of the less
worrisome, but still bothersome, comput-
er hacking that infected hundreds of thou-
sands of personal computers around the
world with malicious software as part of
an online advertising scam. The FBI took
down the hackers late last year and set up
a temporary safety net of Internet servers.
The servers were turned off Monday, but
apparently only a small fraction of
Internet users were left without access.
Among the key issues before Congress
is the matter of encouraging companies
and the federal government to share infor-
mation collected on the Internet to help
prevent electronic attacks from cyber-
criminals, foreign governments and ter-

Some expect the changes, passed by
Congress last month and signed Friday
by President Barack Obama, to have lit-
tle impact on the nations enormous $1.9
trillion in estimated pension fund assets.
And it is more important, they suggest,
to avoid giving employers a new reason
to limit or jettison remaining pension
benets by forcing them to contribute
more than they say they can manage.
The equation underscores a harsh real-
ity for unions, consumer advocates and
others who normally go to the mat for
workers and retirees: When it comes to
battling over pensions, the fragile econ-
omy of 2012 gives the business commu-
nity a lot of leverage.

Malware deadline
passes, very few knocked offline
WASHINGTON If youre reading this online, youre
ne. The day that was supposed to see thousands of people
knocked off the Internet has arrived, but only a few people
were affected.
Thousands of Internet users across the U.S. and beyond
waited too long or simply didnt believe warnings that they
would lose access to the Internet just after midnight
because of malware that took over computers around the
world more than a year ago.
At 12:01 a.m. on Monday, the FBI turned off Internet
servers that were functioning as a temporary safety net to
keep infected computers online for the past eight months.
A court order the agency had gotten to keep the servers
running expired, and was not renewed.
FBI ofcials have been tracking the number of comput-
ers they believe still may be infected by the malware. As of
Sunday night, there were about 41,800 in the U.S., down
from 45,600 on July 4. Worldwide, the total is roughly
211,000 infected. An estimated 2.3 billion people around

Prince Fielder wins Home Run Derby
By Ronald Blum
Prince Fielder became only the sec-
ond player to win multiple titles in
the All-Star Home Run Derby,
thrilling the crowd at Kauffman
Stadium with eight splash shots into
the right-eld fountain and beating
Torontos Jose Bautista 12-7 in the
nal Monday night.
On a night when the Yankees
Robinson Cano was repeatedly
booed and went homerless, Fielder
put on the most powerful display
among baseballs big boppers.
Winner at St. Louis Busch Stadium
three years ago, Fielder hit a total of
28 home runs over three rounds to
cap the main event on the eve of the
All-Star game, hitting the long drive
of the night at
476 feet into
the water.
Ken Griffey
Jr. won three
titles, in 1994,
1998 and 1999.
While the
ball stayed out
of McCovey
Cove during
the 2007 Derby at San Franciscos
AT&T Park and the right-field
swimming pool last year at Chase
Field in Phoenix, there was plenty
of aquatic activity in Kansas City,
second only to Rome for most foun-
tains in cities around the world.
After three splash shots among
his ve homers in the rst round,
Fielder started off the second round
as the setting sun lit up clouds in a
pretty pink behind the left-field
wall. His mop of dreadlocks visible
as he hit without a helmet, Fielder
deposited four more balls into the
322-foot-wide water spectacular,
which by then was illuminated in
the twilight.
He added another water drive in
the nal round, then leaned against
one of his sons while he watched

Ex-Stanford basketball
captain Sauer dies at 35

former captain at Stanford who
helped lead the Cardinal to the 1998
Final Four, has
died. He was 35.

said Monday
that Sauer died
Sunday night in
White Plains,
N.Y., while
playing in an

ketball game. The 6-foot-7, 225-
pound forward from Pittsburgh was
part of a Stanford team that reached
four straight NCAA tournaments
under former coach Mike
Peter was a guy who when he
stepped on the court, he always
played with a huge heart, former
teammate and current Stanford
assistant coach Mark Madsen said.
He was a great shooter and a tough
guy, but when he went off the court,
his heart and the amount he cared
about people was even bigger.
Stanfords coaching staff
received details that Sauer was
shooting free throws after a game,
collapsed and hit his head. He
couldnt be revived after 20 minutes
by EMTs. He was later pronounced
dead at a nearby hospital.
Karen Pasquale in the White
Plains mayors office said Sauer
hadnt complained of not feeling
well before collapsing and hitting
his head on the concrete. An autop-
sy was under way, she said.
A four-year letter winner for the
Cardinal from 1995-99, Sauer aver-
aged 7.9 points and 4.2 rebounds for
his career, including 9.2 points dur-

game, Hillsborough showed a lot of patience and discipline at
the plate. They only had nine hits but took advantage of key
M-A miscues to distance themselves.
In the rst, Hillsborough sent 10 hitters to the dish and
pushed across ve runs to turn that rst inning decit into a
three-run lead. Dudley started the rally with a single and Jack
Damelio followed with a knock of his own. It was then that
M-A started handing runs to Hillsborough. Damelio scored
on an error at short and after a walk loaded the bases, Tucker
Tollmanns grounder to second was thrown low to the plate
and mishandled. M-A made that same mistake during Daniel
Lawrences at-bat to make it 4-2. Chase McCleary picked up
an RBI with a single to left to put at score at 5-2.
Our order is deep 1 through 12, Matt Damelio said. We
dont have a weak hitter on our team. We knew if we could
keep the score close, we had a chance to score a lot of runs.
Dudley was the one responsible to shutting down Menlo-
Atherton and he did it in an extremely frugal way. No. 7 only
threw 42 more pitches to complete his outing.
In the second, after his team spotted him ve runs, Dudley
shut down M-A 1-2-3, using only nine pitches to do so.
Menlo-Atherton made some noise in the third on back to
back hits to start the frame. Reece Lindquist picked up a big
double and Nick Tripaldi scooped up the RBI on a elders
But by that time, Hillsborough was up 12-2.
The eventual winners scored seven runs in the second
inning on only four hits. M-A pitchers walked four in the
frame and Hillsborough made them pay the ultimate prize for
three of those four gifts.
We were looking not to help them out, Matt Damelio said
of his teams approach at the plate. Weve seen faster pitch-
ers, so the key there was to keep your weight back.
Jake Goligoski stroked a key single in the frame and so did
Blake Todzo. In fact, Todzos knock was the rst of three
straight in the inning with Dudley and Damelio hitting the
other two.
When the dust settled in the second, Hillsborough was up
10 runs and looked hungry for more. But they wouldnt get
the game-ending runs until the fourth.
An error on a Dudley smash to third set things up for
Hillsborough. Damelio brought Dudley two bases closer to
the win with a long double to centereld and Aaron Murphy
put a stamp on the afternoon with a line drive that crashed
against the chain-link fence in left eld, scoring Dudley easi-
I threw a lot of strikes, Dudley said of his outing. And I
had the offense back me up.

its denitely a mark many teams set as
the goal before acknowledging a play-
off push. The 43 is denitely more than
most experts predicted.
Thats right, the As are two games
out of the new, second wild card spot
and only ve games out of the rst wild
card spot. The Angels are the top wild
card team at the break with 48 wins.
The Rays and Orioles are both at 45
wins, the Indians and Tigers have 44
wins, while the As, Red Sox and Blue
Jays all have 43 wins.
Lets hope the four-day all-star break
doesnt slow the As roll with which
they ended the rst half. Oakland won
six of seven after beating Seattle 2-1
Sunday. They started the run with a win
over the Rangers and three-game sweep
of the Red Sox, before winning a series
from the Mariners over the weekend.
The As have shown they can be com-
petitive with the best in the American
League and, if they would have taken
care of business against some of the
weaker squads, their record could be
even better.
The As open the second half of the
season with three at Minnesota before
they return home to face the AL West-
leading Texas Rangers followed by a
four-game set against the Yankees
who own the majors best record at the
break, just percentage points better than
the Rangers.
Simply put, the As are relying on
some of the best pitching in baseball,
with a staff of hurlers only the diehard
As fan could identify. Overall, Oakland
has the best team ERA in the American
League at 3.38 and is third in all of
baseball. Starter Tommy Milone has
been nearly untouchable during home
starts and leads the team in ERA, wins
and strikeouts. After an early season
callup, rookie Jarrod Parker appears to
be the real deal and has to be in the
running for Rookie Pitcher of the Year
The bullpen is even more anonymous,
but is fth in the American League with
23 saves.
More importantly, the As staff has
the lowest opponent batting average
against in the majors, allowing oppo-
nents to hit just .225 off Oakland pitch-
ing, while allowing runners to reach
base an average of .301 rst in the
AL and second in baseball, overall.
With the As pitching holding down
the fort, the offense has done just
enough to pull out these wins.
Outelder Josh Reddick is having an
MVP-type season no joke. Hes
vying for As team triple crown lead-
ing the team in batting average (.268),
home runs (20) and RBIs (43). An
argument could be made that no player
has been more valuable to his team this
year than Reddick.
Cuban rookie Yoenis Cespedes has
lived up to his billing, although injuries
have slowed him a little. Brandon Inge
was also a huge free agent pickup and
is tied for second on the team in RBIs
with 36 along with Cespedes.
While most of the Bay Areas atten-
tion is turned to the San Francisco
Giants, maybe its time to keep an eye
on what the green and gold is doing.
Because even if the As are a little awk-
ward, real Bay Area fans want to see
the underdog do well.
There will probably be a big uproar
among baseball media regarding Matt
Cain being named the National League
All-Star Game starter by National
League manager Tony LaRussa.
Cain has struggled in his starts since
his perfect game June 13, while Mets
starter R.A. Dickey has dazzled base-
ball with his out-of-nowhere story and
his bafing knuckleball.
Ill stand behind LaRussa on this one.
No one has done more with less support
than Cain, whose perfect game nally
woke up the rest of baseball about how
good Cain really is and LaRussa is sim-
ply acknowledging Cains stellar stuff
for the past seven years. Get past his
win-loss record and Cains number are
on course for a Hall of Fame career.
Exactly what makes Dickey a worthy
choice also works to his detriment. At
34, 35 years old, Dickey doesnt have
much of a track record of success and
has bounced around baseball for quite a
few years. Rest assured, Dickey will
pitch some innings and there is no
doubt he is an all star this season.
But what should be rewarded:
Sustained excellence or one-time bril-
liance? When it comes to deciding a
start in a relatively meaningless exhibi-
tion game, I say the former gets the nod
over the latter.

Residents in bid to stop Olympic missiles on roof
LONDON Residents of a London
apartment tower went to court Monday
in a bid to stop their rooftop from being
used as a missile base during the
Olympic Games, saying the deployment
in a densely-populated area could make
the building a terrorist target.
The British military plans to deploy
surface-to-air missiles at six sites around
London as part of a vast security opera-
tion for the July 27-Aug. 12 games. But
residents of the 17-story Fred Wigg
Tower in Leytonstone, east London, say
they were not consulted about the move.
Judge Charles Haddon-Cave said he
would rule Tuesday on whether residents
can seek a judicial review of the plans to
put the missiles on their roof.
The residents lawyer, Marc Willers,
told the High Court that his clients had
a fully justied fear that installation or
deployment of the missile system on the
roof of the Fred Wigg Tower gives rise to
the additional risk that the tower itself
may become the focus of a terrorist
They claim the missiles breach their
rights under the European Convention on
Human Rights, which protects an indi-
viduals right to private life and peace-
ful enjoyment of their home.
Missiles also will be stationed at

Harper and Trout go from farmhands to fame
KANSAS CITY, Mo. Bryce Harper
remembered back to Oct. 27, when just 414
fans were at Scottsdale Stadium to watch his
Scorpions play the Mesa Solar Sox in the
Arizona Fall League.
Down 7-5, Bryce Harper vowed to team-
mate Brandon Crawford to hit a game-winning
home run.
Ill drop a bomb and walk off the eld, tell
them we own this place, Harper said. I prom-
ise you Im going to hit a jack right here. I
swear on everything.
Yeah, OK, Mike Trout told him in disbe-
Trout led off with a single, Scottsdale got
another hit with one out and Harper followed
with a home run to right-center off Jeff Inman.
Everybody ran inside the clubhouse,
Harper said. It was a great moment.
Still tied together, baseballs youthful
dynamic duo will be watched by millions on
Tuesday night as the All-Star game returns to
Kansas City and beautiful Kauffman Stadium
for the rst time since 1973.
Just 19, Harper is the youngest position
player in All-Star history and a key part of the
Washington Nationals emergence as a rst-
place team. Trout, a year older, is leading the
American League in hitting and helping the
Los Angeles Angels turn around their season
after a sloppy start.
Coincidentally, both came up to the majors
leagues on April 28, Harper for his debut and
Trout for his return following a pair of stints
last year. They are among a record ve rookie
All-Stars, joined by Texas pitcher Yu Darvish,
Oakland closer Ryan Cook and Arizona pitch-
er Wade Miley.
In a room full of baseballs best, even the
veterans are taking notice of Harper and Trout.
Speed. Power. Excitement. Youth. Energy,
Yankees center elder Curtis Granderson said.
If they are able to stay healthy, they can com-
pletely transform the game as they get, ve,
10, 15 years of big league time.
For now, both will start Tuesday nights
game on the bench.
With the result determining home-field
advantage in the World Series for the 10th
straight year, the AL manager Ron Washington
will start reigning MVP and Cy Young Award
winner Justin Verlander. The NLs Tony La
Russa, the rst inactive All-Star manager since
the ALs Bob Lemon in 1979, chose San
Franciscos Matt Cain coming off a perfect
game last month over knuckleballer R.A.
Dickey of the New York Mets.
Trout was on a ight from Salt Lake City to
Cleveland when he saw on Twitter that Harper
was being called up the same day. Trout hadnt
let many people know he was joining the big
league team.
Knowing he was getting called up that
same day was pretty funny, Trout said.
A son of former Minnesota minor league
inelder Jeff Trout, Mike was taken by the
Angels with the 25th pick on the rst round of
the 2009 amateur draft. Idolizing Derek Jeter,
he played shortstop at Millville Senior High in
New Jersey until he was moved to the outeld
in his senior year. He understands why he last-
ed so late in the rst round.
A lot of risk. East Coast kid. Didnt play all
year, he said. You look at the teams in
Florida and California, theyve got perfect
weather all year. They can play all year.
Harper had the greater renown, on the cover
of Sports Illustrated when he was just 16 with
the headline CHOSEN ONE. With sunglass-
es hanging from the top of his shirt and a neat-
ly cropped beard, he has the big league look. A
hint of acne reveals hes still a teenager.
So much pressure no, Im just kidding,
he said, joshing with the media.
Joining a Nationals team that already has a
top youthful star in ace pitcher Stephen
Strasburg, Harper has a .282 batting average
with eight homers and 25 RBIs in 63 games.
The only younger All-Stars were Bob Feller in
1938 and Dwight Gooden in 1984, both closer
to their 19th birthdays than Harper.
I still feel like I have that kid inside me that
wants to play the game of baseball every sin-
gle day, Harper said. I got love and that pas-
sion for the game and, hopefully, I can keep it
going. I hope Ill be able to play for the
Nationals for a long time and be able to play in
the big leagues for a long time because thats
the dream.
While Harper is polished following years of
interviews, Trout projects a golly-gee
demeanor, with close-cropped hair and a
beaming smile.
After he twice crashed into the center-eld
fence at Denvers Coors Field last month,
teammates Jered Weaver and Dan Haren sug-
gested he turn down the enthusiasm by a few
Its a long year. Were going to need you,
Trout remembered them telling him.
Hes hitting .341 with 12 homers, 40 RBIs
and 26 steals in 29 chances.
I was just telling Jete, Ive never seen a
player hit a triple to left eld, down the line,
Yankees ace CC Sabathia said. Raul (Ibanez)
plays it off the wall, and hes standing on third.
Thats just fun to see. What hes doing is
While Trout was an All-Star shoo-in, La
Russa appeared reluctant to select Harper and
added him on Saturday as a replacement when
Miamis Giancarlo Stanton got hurt.
Even the 67-year-old La Russa, who man-
aged his rst World Series champions before
they were born, appreciates the focus on the
new stars.
Wiggins in command at Tour
BESANCON, France If Mondays time
trial at the Tour de France was the test of
truth as one top rider called it then
Bradley Wiggins aced it.
The Olympic champion, aiming to be the
rst British winner of cyclings showcase
race, sped to victory in the rst big time trial,
tightening his grip on the yellow jersey.
That was my physical best out there, he
said. Its probably my best time trial ever.
The race against the clock is a discipline
Wiggins loves. And it showed in the ninth
stage, a 25.8-mile ride from Arc-et-Senans to
Besancon. He nished 35 seconds ahead of
Sky teammate Christopher Froome, the run-
Defending champion Cadel Evans of
Australia, seen as Wiggins most formidable
rival, was a disappointing sixth. He called
Wiggins and Froome very, very, very strong
A day earlier, Evans was all too aware of
the stakes in the time trial: Tomorrow is
the test of truth. Its each with their own
two legs, he said.
Evans was 1:43 behind. He remains second
overall, trailing Wiggins by 1:53. Froome rose
to third, from sixth, and is 2:07 behind his
I was really motivated the time trial is
my thing, Wiggins said, adding he had
worked hard on his riding position, breathing
and study of the course. I am very happy
Overall, Italys Vincenzo Nibali is fourth,
2:23 behind. Russias Denis Menchov is fth,
3:02 back, and Spains Haimar Zubeldia is
sixth, 3:19 off the pace.
Wiggins has been the favorite since a daz-
zling stretch of three stage-race victories this
season. At the Tour, he was fourth in 2009 and
24th in 2010, just behind Lance Armstrong,
riding in his nal Tour. He crashed out last
As this 99th Tour continues, Sky is likely to
shelter Wiggins in the ats and escort him up
Alps and Pyrenees climbs by pressing the
pace with him in their draft, trying to wear out
Bautista swing.
When he won three years ago in
St. Louis, Fielders 23 homers
included a 503-foot drive that disap-
peared between two sections of
bleachers in right-center.
Cano set a nal-round record of
12 en route to last years title in
Phoenix, where he hit 32 overall.
This year he was the object of loud
booing throughout by fans upset he
didnt select the Royals Billy
Butler after promising to take a
hometown player for his derby
Fans chanted Bil-ly Butler! in
between their boos. When it was
over, Cano got hugs from Bostons
David Ortiz and Yankees teammates
Curtis Granderson and CC
Everywhere the Yankees go play,
they get booed all the time. Im used
to it, Cano said.
It was the 17th time a player went
homerless in the Derby, the rst
since Detroits Brandon Inge in
that was the most interesting
reaction to a home rum derby ive
ever seen, but the fans were excited
which is all that counts,
Granderson tweeted.
Carlos Gonzalez and Andrew
McCutchen (four each) and Matt
Kemp (one) also were dropped after
the rst round.
Carlos Beltran (12) was dropped
after the second round, when Mark
Trumbo and Bautista were tied with
13 apiece, leading to a swingoff
won by Bautista 2-1.
Trumbo and Bautista each man-
aged to put a drive into the small
fountain beyond the left-eld wall.
Trumbo also hit a pair of shots over
the Royals Hall of Fame in left,
toward Interstate 70.

Matt Cain gets All-Star start
of the best record in baseball, R.A.
Dickey was hoping to become the
rst knuckleballer to start an All-
Star game since Dutch Leonard in
A 12-1 record
wasnt good
enough. Tony
La Russa
picked San
F r a n c i s c o s
Matt Cain to
start for the
N a t i o n a l
League on
Tuesday night.
Im not
going to break down in tears over it,
but at the same time Im a competi-
tor. I want to pitch. I want to start,
Dickey said Monday. I feel like I
had a good enough rst half that I
should be considered. But Im not
the boss. I dont necessarily have to
agree with him, but I have to respect
it. Thats just the way it is.
Detroits Justin Verlander will
start for the American League as the
All-Stars return to Kansas City for
the rst time since 1973.
La Russa, who retired after lead-
ing the St. Louis Cardinals to last
years World Series title, made the
decision after consulting with his
longtime pitching coach, Dave
Duncan. Cain had the advantage of
pitching a perfect game against
Houston on June 13.
We wanted to reward Matt Cain
for a career of excellence thats get-
ting better and better, La Russa
said. And he had a great example
of that during the summer on one of
his pitching days.
Cain also will be pitching to his
regular catcher, Buster Posey. La
Russa said
Dickey likely
will enter the
game sometime
in the rst ve
innings, around
the time
Carlos Ruiz
replaces Posey
behind the
Dickey hopes he wasnt denied
the start just because he throws
Youre talking about the best
players in the world, and youre ask-
ing about a pitch thats too nasty to
handle? Dickey said. I hope thats
not it. If thats the reason, thats a
poor reason.
Cain is 9-3 with a 2.62 ERA.
Dickey, a rst-time All-Star at age
37, became the rst major leaguer in
24 years to throw consecutive one-
We have guys the last couple of
years, whether its spring training or
even during the season, I dont play
against Dickey, La Russa said. He
can spook you.
Verlander, 9-5 with a 2.58 ERA,
is the rst All-Star starter who has
won Rookie of the Year, Cy Young
and MVP.
Obviously right now, Im pretty
excited about it, he said. Actually
sitting here just looking over the
lineup thinking about how Im
going to pitch these guys.

Sacramento to explore
bringing MLB team to city
SACAMENTO Sacramento Mayor
Kevin Johnson has given up trying to keep an
NBA team and is instead aiming to lure a
Major League Baseball franchise to his city.
Johnson and his Think Big Sacramento task
force announced a plan Monday to market
Californias capital city as a possible landing
spot for a major league team. A plan for a new
arena for the Sacramento Kings collapsed ear-
lier this year when team owners Joe, Gavin
and George Maloof backed out, saying it did-
nt make nancial sense for the franchise.
Baseball might be an even longer shot.
There are already two teams in Northern
California, and Oaklands Triple-A afliate
plays in Sacramento. The Athletics have their
sights set on San Jose, but the San Francisco
Giants hold the territorial rights to that area.

nished with 10 points, seven rebounds and a
blocked shot in 22 minutes of that game.
You wanted the ball in Petes hands late in
the game, Madsen said. He wanted the pres-
sure and to shoot late in the game.
Montgomery, now coaching at California,
called Sauer the epitome of the denition of
a student-athlete. He was smart; he was
tough; he was a winner.
Peter Sauer was one of the most popular
players I have ever coached, Montgomery
said. He played on a Final Four team and
was an integral part of the success of that
group. Peter was somebody that his team-
mates really looked up to and admired. It is
tragic that this can happen to a young man in
the prime of his life. We are all very saddened
with the news. This is very tough news to get.
My heart goes out to his family during this
difcult time.
Sauer, who was born in St. Louis on Nov. 9,
1976, earned a degree in economics from
Stanford. He had worked until recently in
investments for Bank of America in New
York, where he gave Stanfords players a tour
of his ofce building during their off day from
the NIT this past spring. He also regularly
stayed in touch with the program and was
planning a reunion for former players during
this falls USC-Stanford football game,
including a ag football game for them to get
in on the fun.
That was Peter, Madsen said. He just
wanted to get everybody together.
Sauer is survived by his wife, Amanda, and
three children.
Everyone in the Stanford community is
deeply saddened by the passing of Peter
Sauer, coach Johnny Dawkins said. He was
a tremendous individual and a devoted hus-
band and father. He was very passionate about
Stanford and our basketball program. Our
thoughts and prayers go out to his wife
Amanda and their three children.

Solo gets warning from USADA
national team goalkeeper Hope Solo received
a public warning Monday from the U.S. Anti-
Doping Agency after she tested positive for
the banned substance
Canrenone in a urine test.
Solo has accepted the
warning and will still play
for the United States in the
Olympic tournament.
The 30-year-old Solo
tested positive for
Canrenone in a test on
June 15.
I took a medication
prescribed by my personal
doctor for pre-menstrual purposes that I did
not know contained a diuretic, Solo said in a
statement. Once informed of this fact, I
immediately cooperated with USADA and
shared with them everything they needed to
properly conclude that I made an honest mis-
take, and that the medication did not enhance
my performance in any way.
Canrenone is classied as a specied sub-
stance, so its presence in an athletes sample
can result in a reduced sanction.
As someone who believes in clean sport, I
am glad to have worked with USADA to
resolve this matter and I look forward to rep-
resenting my country at the 2012 Olympic
Games in London, she said.
A recent seminalist on Dancing With The
Stars, Solo has been the regular U.S. keeper
for nearly six years and backstopped the
Americans to the 2008 gold medal in Beijing
with some spectacular performances.
Considered one of the worlds top keepers,
she helped the Americans to a second-place
nish in last years World Cup, only a penalty
kicks shootout loss to Japan denying Solo her
rst World Cup title.
She also is remembered for the contentious
nish to the 2007 World Cup in China, when
she helped the Americans reach the seminals.
But she was benched by coach Greg Ryan
against Brazil for veteran Briana Scurry, a
hero of the 1999 world champions. Scurry was
rusty, the United States was routed 4-0, and
Solo famously criticized Ryans move.
It was the wrong decision, and I think any-
body that knows anything about the game
knows that, Solo said. Theres no doubt in
my mind I would have made those saves. ...
You have to live in the present. And you cant
live by big names. You cant live in the past.
Ryan dismissed Solo from the World Cup
team. She wasnt allowed on the bench for the
third-place game, did not participate in the
medal ceremony and ew home from China
on her own.
Pia Sundhage soon took over as coach and
Solo has remained her top goalkeeper since.

Montgomery signs
extension at Cal through 2015-16
BERKELEY California coach Mike
Montgomery has agreed to a two-year con-
tract extension to remain at the school through
the 2015-16 season.
The announcement Monday comes nine
months after Montgomery disclosed he had
bladder cancer and surgery that left him can-
cer-free. Montgomery led the Golden Bears to
a 24-10 record last season, a runner-up nish
in the Pac-12 Conference and a rst-round
loss to South Florida in the NCAA tourna-
The former Montana, Stanford and Golden
State Warriors coach is 88-47 in four seasons
at Berkeley. He also helped Cal capture its
rst league title in 50 years in 2010.
Montgomery thanked the administration for
the support and said his staff has established
a strong foundation of success and look for-
ward to continuing to add to the rich tradition
of this program.
Sharks hire Larry Robinson
as associate coach
SAN JOSE The San Jose Sharks hired
Hall of Fame defenseman and former Stanley
Cup winning coach Larry Robinson as associ-
ate coach on Monday.
The Sharks had been looking to add a for-
mer player who could help the penalty kill
unit to the staff and Robinson t the bill with
his vast experience on the ice and as a coach.
His resume speaks for itself, said general
manager Doug Wilson, who was Robinsons
defensive partner on Team Canada in the 1984
Canada Cup. Theres nobody in this business
that I respect more as a player, as a coach, or
as a person than Larry. Its an exciting day for
our organization.
Despite having experience as a head coach
with Los Angeles and New Jersey and win-
ning a Stanley Cup with the Devils in 2000,
Robinson made clear that he knows his role
with the Sharks is to help coach Todd
That was the rst thing I said when I came
into room. I dont want to be a head coach, he
said. Im not here to take Todds job. I want
to help in any way I can.
Robinson left the Devils so he could be
closer to his grandchildren in Southern
California. He did not want to take the job
until visiting the Bay Area and meeting in per-
son with McLellan.

As three trades of last winter paying dividends
OAKLAND Just like that last
winter, the Oakland Athletics traded
away three of their best pitchers:
All-Stars Trevor Cahill and Gio
Gonzalez, and 2009 Rookie of the
Year closer Andrew Bailey.
And in came a crop of new names
few people even knew in Josh
Reddick, Derek Norris, Tommy
Milone and Jarrod Parker. Dont
forget rookie closer and surprise
All-Star Ryan Cook is in that mix,
Seven months later, they are the
face of the young As franchise
and nobody would argue that they
exceeded expectations in the rst
half. Oakland (43-43) is .500 at the
All-Star break and won ve of its
last six games with a cast of con-
stant moving parts.
The As eight walkoff wins lead
the majors.
Reddick is the teams hottest hit-
ter with 20 home runs. Parker and
Milone have 13 wins between them.
Cant really question general man-
ager Billy Beanes moves now
even if fans often have a hard time
watching their favorite players ever
so briey before they leave town.
Beane dealt Cahill and reliever
Craig Breslow to defending NL
West champion Arizona for 2007
ninth overall draft pick Parker.
Then, Beane sent the fan favorite
Gonzalez to Washington and
received the left-hander Milone and
catcher-of-the-future Norris. From
Boston for Bailey and outelder
Ryan Sweeney, the As got Reddick
in return.
Three trades with great results.
We traded good players Gio,
Trevor, Bailey, Sweeney, assistant
GM David Forst said. We didnt
trade players we thought werent
still good. Those guys are doing
well, and we felt we got good play-
ers in return. Obviously the thinking
outside the organization was that
these guys werent going to impact
the team right away, but I think if
you look at mine and Billys
thoughts publicly right after the
trades, we were condent that these
guys were going to contribute soon-
er rather than later.
If you go down the list, Josh has
been our most consistent offensive
player, Josh has been outstanding as
a starter, Tommy has t right into
the rotation, and on down. Derek is
here. We didnt make these trades
for 2012 but we were hoping they
would impact this years team.
Oaklands latest winning run
included a three-game home sweep
of the Red Sox last week in which
As pitchers held Bostons big bop-
pers to ve total runs in the series.
Reddick, left off the AL All-Star
roster, is the rst Oakland player
with 20 homers by the break since
Nick Swisher in 2006. Cook began
the season with a 23-inning score-
less streak, the longest to begin a
year for an As pitcher on the open-
ing day roster since at least 1918.
Parker is 5-4 with a 2.86 ERA in
14 starts.
Weve done alright, Parker said
nonchalantly. Its not our job and
its something we worry about, and
we know its trades and guys
bounce around. Thats just the busi-
ness. When a trades made, both
teams get the guys they want and
thats what a good deal is. Both
sides are happy.
Parker, Cook and outelder Collin
Cowgill all were players the As
envisioned could be in the big
leagues this season when acquired
from Arizona in December.
Parker only made his major
league debut last Sept. 27, pitching
5 2-3 scoreless innings and allowing
four hits against the Dodgers for a
no-decision in his only start.
The Diamondbacks chose
Cowgill in the fth round of the
2008 draft.

WASHINGTON An AIDS-free genera-
tion: It seems an audacious goal, considering
how the HIV epidemic still is raging around
the world.
Yet more than 20,000 international HIV
researchers and activists will gather in the
nations capital later this month with a sense
of optimism not seen in many years hope
that it nally may be possible to dramatically
stem the spread of the AIDS virus.
We want to make sure we dont over-
promise, Dr. Anthony Fauci, the National
Institutes of Healths infectious disease chief,
told the Associated Press. But, he said, I
think we are at a turning point.
The big new focus is on trying to get more
people with HIV treated early, when theyre
rst infected, instead of waiting until theyre
weakened or sick, as the world largely has
done until now. Staying healthier also makes
them less likely to infect others.
It saves lives of people who are infected,
and it saves lives of people by not allowing
them to get infected, Fauci explained.
Thats a tall order. But studies over the past
two years have shown what Fauci calls strik-
ing, sometimes breathtaking results, in pre-
venting people at high risk of HIV from get-
ting it in some of the hardest-hit countries,
using this treatment-as-prevention and some
other protections.
Now, as the International AIDS Conference
returns to the U.S. for the rst time in 22
years, the question is whether the world will
come up with the money and the know-how to
put the best combinations of protections into
practice, for AIDS-ravaged poor countries and
hot spots in developed nations as well.
We have the tools to make it happen, said
Dr. Elly Katabira, president of the
International AIDS Society, which organizes
the worlds largest HIV conference, set for
July 22-27. He points to strides already in
Botswana and Rwanda in increasing access to
AIDS drugs.
But Fauci cautioned that moving those tools
into everyday life is a daunting challenge,
given the costs of medications and the dif-
culty in getting people to take them for years
despite poverty and other competing health
and social problems.
In the U.S., part of that challenge is com-
placency. Despite 50,000 new HIV infections
here every year, an AP-GfK poll nds that
very few people in the United States worry
about getting the virus.
Also, HIV increasingly is an epidemic of
the poor, minorities and urban areas such as
the District of Columbia, where the rate of
infection rivals some developing countries.
The conference will spotlight this citys
aggressive steps to ght back: A massive
effort to nd the undiagnosed, with routine
testing in some hospitals, testing vans that
roam the streets, even free tests at a
Department of Motor Vehicles ofce, and then
rapidly getting those patients into care.
These are the true champions, Dr.
Mohammed Akhter, director of the citys
health department, said of patients who faith-
fully take their medication. Theyre also pro-
tecting their community.
A few miles east of the Capitol and the
tourist-clogged monuments, the Community
Education Groups HIV testing van pulls into
a parking lot in a low-income neighborhood
with a particularly high infection rate. An
incentive for the crowd at a nearby corner is
the offer of a $10 supermarket gift card for
getting tested.
Christopher Freeman, 23, is rst in line. He
was tested earlier this year and says showing
off that ofcial paper proclaiming him HIV-
negative attracts the ladies.
Forget money, its the best thing you can
show them, he said.
But that test was months ago, and Freeman
admits he seldom uses condoms. He climbs
into the van and rubs a swab over his gums.
Twenty minutes later, hes back for the result:
Good news no HIV. But counselor Amanda
Matthews has Freeman go through a list of the
risk factors; its education to try to keep him
and his future partners safe.
Just try to get yourself in the habit of using
condoms, she said. You say its hard to use
condoms but what if you do contract the
virus? Then youve got to take medications
every day.
Freeman waves his new test result with a
grin, and walks off with a handful of free con-
At a nearby bus stop, counselor Laila
Patrick encounters a little resistance while
handing out condoms, when a woman says
that encourages sex outside of marriage.
Stopping AIDS is everyones business.
Youre looking out for the next person,
Patrick said. You might just want to help
someone be safe.
About 34 million people worldwide have
HIV, including almost 1.2 million Americans.
Its a very different epidemic from the last
time the International AIDS Conference came
to the United States, in 1990. Life-saving
drugs emerged a few years later, turning HIV
from a death sentence into a manageable
chronic disease for people and countries that
can afford the medications.

to reduce your pain.
Yet for all the improvements in
HIV treatment, the rate of new
infections in the U.S. has held
steady for about a decade. About 1
in 5 Americans with HIV dont
know they have it, more than
200,000 people who unwittingly
can spread the virus.
Government gures show most
new U.S. infections are among gay
and bisexual men, followed by het-
erosexual black women. Of particu-
lar concern, African-Americans
account for about 14 percent of the
population but 44 percent of new
HIV infections.
Your ZIP code plays a role in your
risk, too. Twelve cities account for
more than 40 percent of the nations
AIDS cases: New York, Los
Angeles, Washington, Chicago,
Atlanta, Miami, Philadelphia,
Houston, San Francisco, Baltimore,
Dallas and San Juan, Puerto Rico.
Many are concentrated in specic
parts of those cities.
Maps tell the story, said Brown
University assistant professor Amy
Nunn, who is beginning a campaign
that will bring a testing van door-to-
door in the hardest-hit Philadelphia
ZIP code.
Its not just what you do, its also
where you live. Theres just a high-
er chance that you will come into
contact with the virus, she
Prospects for a vaccine are so far
elusive and health disparities are
widening, so why the optimism as
expressed by the Obama administra-
tions goal of getting to an AIDS-
free generation?
Consider the potential strategies,
to add to tried-and-true steps such as
condom use and treating HIV-
infected pregnant women to protect
their unborn babies:
Studies found treatment-as-pre-
vention could lower an HIV
patients chance of spreading the
virus to an uninfected sexual partner
by a stunning 96 percent. In the U.S.,
new guidelines recommend starting
treatment early rather than waiting
until the immune system has weak-
ened. Abroad, the United Nations
hopes to more than double the num-
ber of patients being treated in poor
countries to 15 million by 2015.
Other studies show a longtime
AIDS medication named Truvada
can prevent infection, too, if taken
daily by healthy people who are at
risk from their infected sexual part-
ners. The U.S. Food and Drug
Administration is expected to
decide by fall whether to formally
approve sale of Truvada as an HIV
A study from South Africa
found a vaginal gel containing anti-
AIDS medication helped protect
women when their infected partners
wouldnt use a condom, generating
more interest in developing women-
controlled protection.
Globally, experts also stress
male circumcision, to lower mens
risk of heterosexually acquired HIV.
Testing is a key step in improving
prevention. The AP-GfK poll found
57 percent of adults say theyve
been tested at some point, a bit
higher than federal estimates, but
not enough. The government recom-
mends at least one test for adults,
and that populations at higher risk
get tested at least once a year.
Following those recommenda-
tions depends in part on peoples
concern about AIDS. The poll found
just over half of Americans consider
HIV as much or more of a problem
now than two decades ago. But less
than 20 percent are worried about
getting it themselves, and even pop-
ulations at higher risk dont consid-
er HIV a big threat. Some 16 per-
cent of black respondents said
theyre very worried about HIV,
compared with 4 percent of whites.
Weve become complacent about
HIV in America, and its a real
tragedy because hundreds of thou-
sands of people in our own country
arent getting the care they need,
said Chris Collins of amFAR, The
Foundation for AIDS Research.
The drugs can cost up to $15,000
a year in the U.S., and overall treat-
ment costs are rising as people with
HIV live longer. In developing
countries, those drugs can cost less
than $400 a year.
The AP-GfK Poll was conducted
June 14-18 by GfK Roper Public
Affairs and Corporate
Communications. It involved land-
line and cellphone interviews with
1,007 adults nationwide. Results for
the full sample have a margin of
sampling error of plus or minus 4.0
percentage points.

NEW YORK Most moms have the talk
with their daughters about their periods. Now
the Poise feminine hygiene brand is initiating
a second talk with women this time,
about menopause.
Poise on July 23 is rolling out a line of prod-
ucts that target 50 million American women
who are or will soon go through menopause.
Priced between $3.99 and $7.99, the line
includes lubricant for vaginal dryness, panty
freshener stickers and feminine wash for odor
and cooling towelettes and roll-on gel for
women having hot ashes.
Its a move by consumer-products maker
Kimberly-Clark, which owns Poise, to expand
the brand beyond its line of pads for inconti-
nence. But introducing new consumer prod-
ucts is tough since most people tend to be
loyal to brands for decades. Not to mention
that some doctors say many of the products
Kimberly-Clark is rolling out are not particu-
larly useful to women going through
Feminine washes are usually not recom-
mended by many doctors, says Dr. Lauren F.
Streicher, a gynecologist and assistant profes-
sor of obstetrics and gynecology at the
Feinberg School of Medicine in Chicago. And
products that mask vaginal odor could cause
people to not treat what is causing that symp-
tom in the rst place, she added.
The idea of covering it up
with a freshener is an inappro-
priate approach, Streicher said.
Im thrilled people are paying
attention, but I dont want to
see people taken advantage of.
This isnt the first time
Kimberly-Clark, a Dallas-based company that
also makes Kleenex tissue and Huggies dia-
pers, has attempted to shake up feminine care.
In 2010, the company launched U by Kotex, a
line of brightly packaged tampons and pads,
with tongue-and-cheek TV ads made fun of
feminine care ad stereotypes such as a woman
running on the beach and asked Why are
tampon ads so ridiculous? The line was a hit
and named one of SymphonyIRIs 2011 New
Product Pacesetters.
For the Poise brand, the company created
the term light bladder leakage, or LBL, in
2009 to avoid the stigma associated with the
word incontinence. The company also hired
actress Kirstie Alley to spread the word that
one in every three women had experienced
light bladder leakage symptoms.
Now the company wants to build on that by
expanding the Poise brand, which was rst
launched in 1992. Sales of Poise products
have grown steadily over the past ve years,
with sales up 56 percent to $475.7 million in
2011, according to Euromonitor International.
Making a new product line wasnt easy,
Beginning in 2009,
about 30 people at
two-thirds of
them women
t h e ms e l v e s ,
began to
research what types they could offer new
products under the Poise brand, aimed at
women 40-plus. They interviewed 8,000
women in the U.S. and 3,000 people outside
the U.S. during the process, asking questions
about their needs and testing products and
advertising concepts. They found that women
faced three main symptoms of menopause
vaginal dryness, odor and hot ashes.
But the company had to gure out how to
appeal to women about a subject thats not
discussed often. The company rolled out the
product in Chile in 2009. In the country,
which is a more conservative than the U.S.,
Kimberly-Clark marketed the product with
the made-up word maduritude, a combina-
tion of the Spanish words for mature and
woman. In the U.S., the company decided to
be more frank about menopause.
In the U.S., Kimberly-Clark created a TV,
print and online marketing campaign focuses
on The Second Talk. In TV and print ads,
which begin running on July 30, women
describe the symptoms of menopause and the
need to discuss it.
Theres the big talk about the period.
Theres no talk about
menopause, said one
woman in a TV ad.
Copy from a print ad
reads: Its like some-
one put a hot frying
pan on my face, in
reference to hot ash-
es. The ad directs
people to see real
womens stories at
t he2ndt al k. com,
which will hold
online forums on the
Ki mberl y-Cl ark
says that the cam-
paign and the prod-
ucts the company
is waiting for Food
and Drug
Administration for
the vaginal lubricant
are an attempt to
open up a dialogue
about menopause.
Thats something the
company says women
say they long for.

WellPoint to buy
Amerigroup for
roughly $4.46B
INDIANAPOLIS WellPoint Inc., the
nations second-largest health insurer, will get a
bigger chunk of the expanding market of peo-
ple covered by Medicaid with its $4.46 billion
acquisition of a provider of the program for
needy and disabled Americans.
WellPoint said that it will spend $92 per
share in cash for Amerigroup Corp., which runs
Medicaid coverage in 13 states, including
Texas, Florida, New York and New Jersey.
Medicaid, which is state- and federally fund-
ed, represents a growth opportunity for
WellPoint and other big U.S. insurers. States
are starting to move residents who qualify for
both Medicaid and Medicare, which is a feder-
ally-funded program for people over age 65
and the disabled, into managed care programs
that coordinate care.
These so-called dual eligible patients gen-
erally have chronic or expensive medical con-
ditions. When their care isnt coordinated, tests
can be duplicated, and people who would qual-
ify for help from Medicaid may not sign up
because they arent aware they may be eligible.
States want to improve their care and cut
wasteful spending.
WellPoint said the acquisition of
Amerigroup, based on Virginia Beach, Va.,
gives it the opportunity for about $16 billion in
potential revenue.
The dual-eligible expansion opportunity is
tremendous and was a driving force for this
transaction, WellPoint Chairwoman and CEO
Angela Braly told analysts.
The price of WellPoint shares climbed 3.3
percent, or $1.98, to $61.89 Monday afternoon,
while Amerigroup stock soared 38 percent, or
$24.51, to $88.85. The offer of $92 per share
was a 43 percent premium to Amerigroups
closing price of $64.34 on Friday.
Big health insurers have relatively modest
Medicaid businesses. That means that they
arent in a good position to compete for dual
eligible business, Citi analyst Carl McDonald
said in a research note. But he said that the
Amerigroup deal makes WellPoint a key play-
er in opportunities across the country.

signicant risk in the event of failure by
the Army Corps of Engineers. The coun-
tys civil grand jury took aim at the levees
during is 2006-07 session but yesterday
released a new report saying the county,
its cities and its emergency personnel have
failed to establish the necessary response
plan for levees. The county, San Carlos
and South San Francisco still have no
emergency action plan for their levees
while East Palo Alto, Foster City, San
Mateo and Redwood City created plans
with varied levels of consistency and
detail. None of them though sent the plans
to OES for inclusion in a countywide
emergency operations plan.
In comparison, the civil grand jury con-
cluded ve years ago those responsible for
dams have for the most part fullled their
In its report released yesterday, the sit-
ting civil grand jury contends the issue
cannot continue to be ignored and the
failure to act on the 2007 report must be
highlighted and aggressively addressed.
The civil grand jury reports carry no
legal weight but recipients must respond
in writing within 90 days.
Weiss agreed levee and dam safety is
important. It is a signicant issue so I
dont think it will be overkill by any
means to plan for it, he said.
However, Weiss added that the prepara-
tion would require effort on par with the
countys tsunami plan which was no small
feat. Neither Weiss nor Robbins were in
their current positions when the previous
civil grand jury released its report but the-
orized dwindling resources and the begin-
ning states of the economic downturn
could have played a role in why commit-
ments were not followed through upon.
There have been some changes to the
levee status since the last report. Foster
City, Redwood City, San Mateo and San
Mateo County have worked with the
Federal Emergency Management Agency
to bring some levees up to standards to
meet insurance guidelines which avoids
the surrounding areas being deemed ood
plains. The civil grand jury concluded this
reduces the risk of catastrophic failure but
does not address procedures for emer-
gency response if an incident still hap-
As of March 12, 2012, FEMA also
reclassied or removed levees in Belmont,
Burlingame and Pacica.
San Carlos Assistant City Manager
Brian Moura said the city has no copy of
the original report and the civil grand jury
couldnt nd a copy of the letter it report-
edly sent with the recommendations.
Moura, however, said the city worked
with the county and Redwood City to
raise levees several feet in the Redwood

With San Carlos partnering with the
Sheriffs Ofce now, Im pretty sure we
can get a plan together fairly quickly,
Moura said.
Robbins said he will also aggressively
explore potential funding options.
In 2008, OES applied but was denied a
hazard mitigation grant for dam and levee
work by the California Emergency
Management Agency.
The civil grand jury also recommended
Sheriff Greg Munks direct OES to imme-
diately take proactive steps to obtain
funding and within 60 days develop a
timeline and plan with cities to meet their
commitment. The civil grand jury also
asks that the counties and affected city
councils create emergency plans with a
minimum of three telephone contacts for
responsible ofcials, protocols to mitigate
danger during an emergency and copies
of the most recent inspection reports on
levee soundness. All of the information
should be incorporated into the county-
wide plan by Dec. 31, 2012.

giving it unobstructed 360-degree
views of the runways and aireld, airport
director John Martin said.
The tower will be built to withstand an
8.0-magnitude earthquake and adhere to
LEEDs Gold certied standards, boasting
solar panels, energy efcient operating
equipment, and even a charging station for
electric vehicles.
The three-year project is expected to
create as many as 600 jobs, the majority of
which will be in construction.
LaHood praised the project as an exam-
ple of thinking big and building big and
said the new tower will modernize the air-
port for the next generation.
The new tower will help us maintain a
safe air transportation system for the y-
ing public and provide economic benets
for the future, he said.
Federal Aviation Administration Acting
Administrator Michael Huerta agreed,
calling the new tower an important invest-
ment in the economy of the region by
expanding the ability of SFO to move pas-
sengers and cargo through the Bay Area
safely and efciently.
This is a very small facility, but they
move a lot of trafc in and out of here
very, very safely, Huerta said. This new
state-of-the-art tower will ensure that we
continue to do that.
In 2011, SFO was the nations 15th
busiest airport, handling about 404,000
takeoffs and landings, according to the
Huerta said the larger, taller tower will
represent the cutting edge of modern
avionics and be a much more efcient air
trafc control system.
We need to be able to handle more
travelers and more trafc without delays,
he said.
San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee said he
sported a tie with an image of the Golden
Gate Bridge on it to represent the impor-
tance of investing in infrastructure proj-
ects for future generations.

Lisel, who previously served as the
CEO of Shelter Network, will run the new
agency while InnVision CEO Christine
Burroughs transitions into retirement.
Lisel explained InnVision was search-
ing for a successor for Burroughs. At the
same time, Shelter Network was looking
for ways to meet increased demand.
Through this new partnership, Lisel
expects to have increased capacity, work
more efciently, work within a larger geo-
graphic area and create a stronger nan-
cial organization.
Increasing capacity was a major decid-
ing factor.
The needs of the community have
been growing steadily as the nancial col-
lapse occurred, said Brian Greenberg,
vice president of programs and services.
Recently, there has been a nightly wait
list for facilities that averages 50 individu-
als in San Mateo County. Over time, Lisel
anticipates being able to serve an addi-
tional 1,000 people per year.
InnVision was established to serve
Santa Clara County in 1973. Shelter
Network began offering services in San
Mateo County in 1987. InnVision Shelter
Network, which became ofcial this
month, is anticipated to work with 20,000
clients with an annual budget of $16 mil-
lion. It plans to work with 200 employees,
18,000 volunteers and to maintain 18
major facilities.
Before running that efciently, there are
some changes that need to be made.
Employee training is expected to take
place later this month. The plan is to ana-
lyze best practices to be shared across the
new region, said Greenberg. InnVision,
for example, typically has clients staying
with it much longer than Shelter Network.
One way to limit that time frame and
serve more people is a client service
model called Beyond the Bed. In that
model, clients will quickly be helped to
create a resume and begin looking for jobs
within the rst week of working with
InnVision Shelter Network, he said.
The funding model 60 percent pub-
lic and 40 percent private will remain.
And those seeking help will go through
the same process they have before. A new
Board of Directors was selected from the
boards of both nonprots.

CANCER (June 21-July 22)Go out of your way to
be tactful in any involvements you have with those
who are in authoritative positions. Remember, theyll
have the upper hand at all times, not you.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)Discussing potential,
partially developed plans with others could add con-
fusion to your thinking. Wait until you have everything
worked out before talking about your intentions.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)Its never the right day to
poke your nose into a situation that is none of your
business. Your curiosity could get you drawn into the
complicated affairs of another. M.Y.O.B.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23)Be open-minded to the
views of your associates, but, by the same token,
dont think everything they say consists of the wisest
thoughts either. Use your own judgment when it
comes down to it.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22)Unless youre an expert
on the subject, guard against a tendency to criticize the
efforts of others. Listen and learn; they could be right.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21)Think twice before get-
ting involved in a project that is being managed by another.
Should things go awry, you could be held accountable.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)If youre smart,
youll keep an issue about which you and your mate
are diametrically opposed under wraps. Youre not
going to resolve anything, but you could make it
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19)Attitude is everything
where your productivity is concerned. If you look
at things as being diffcult and distasteful, you can
expect the job to severely cramp your style.
PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20)Spending lots of money
is no assurance that youll be guaranteed a good time.
In fact, certain expensive activities can turn out to be
ARIES (March 21-April 19)Dont start anything that
you know you cant or wont fnish, because chances
are it will be left undone for quite some time. If that
happens, it will be a thorn in your side until you
complete it.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20)Subdue inclinations to
judge people or events negatively before you have all
the facts. If you persist in thinking dark thoughts, you
will make sure the day lives up to these expectations.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20)Be extremely selective
of the friends with whom you choose to spend the
day if youre planning some type of specifc, enjoy-
able activity. Make sure all are compatible.

Eugene Oscar Brown
Case Number 122490
To all heirs, beneficiaries, creditors, con-
tingent creditors, and persons who may
otherwise be interested in the will or es-
tate, or both, of: Eugene Oscar Brown,
aka Eugene O. Brown, aka Eugene
Brown. A Petition for Probate has been
filed by Bonnie Bridges in the Superior
Court of California, County of San Mateo.
The Petition for Probate requests that
Bonnie Bridges be appointed as personal
representative to administer the estate of
the decedent.

and codicils, if any, be admitted to pro-
bate. The will and any codicils are avail-
able for examination in the file kept by
the court.
The petition requests authority to admin-
ster the estate under the Independent
Administration of Estates Act. (This
athourity will allow the personal repre-
sentative to take many actions without
obtaining court approval. Before taking
certain very important actions, however,
the personal representative will be re-
quired to give notice to interested per-
sons unless they have waived notice or
consented to the proposed action.) The
independent administration authority will
be granted unless an interested person
files an objection to the petition and
shows good cause why the court should
not grant the authority.
A hearing on the petition will be held in
this court as follows: August 13, 2012 at
9:00 a.m., Dept. 28, Superior Court of
California, County of San Mateo, 400
County Center, 1st Floor, Redwood City,

of the petition, you should appear at the
hearing and state your objections or file
written objections with the court before
the hearing. Your appearance may be in
person or by your attorney. If you are a
creditor or a contingent creditor of the
decedent, you must file your claim with

representative appointed by the court
within four months from the date of first
issuance of letters as provided in Pro-
bate Code section 9100. The time for fil-
ing claims will not expire before four

licensed by the Contractors State Li-
